How does it do when there is another task (even a niced one like
commercial flag or transcode) running on the processor? I find even
the 3ghz machine can get a little bothered then.
BTW, also is your 720p stream 60fps? Sometimes I see 720p streams that
are not at the full framerate (since they are derived from filmstock shot
at 24fps in particular.)
